“Right now it's a huge issue for me. Within 5 min of turning it on it auto turns off. I'm already trying hard to keep it out of the sun prior to shooting. We're going through out hottest summer that I have ever known and my GoPro is struggling which is making filming super tricky.”

Why overheating problems happen to GoPros?

GoPros are designed as action cameras, which means GoPros are born for extreme sports and outdoor sports. When use the GoPro for skiing and motorvolog, typically it is moving on a skier or bike and that would get air to cool the GoPro down quickly. Therefore, the overheating problem will not happen. Sitting on a desk is not the normal use for a GoPro and the overheating problem in this case could be neglected. Compared with other kind of cameras, GoPros have their own advantages, like small size with great performance, high resolution and others. However, GoPro has a fatal weakness when it owns those advantages, which is overheating issue.

Mine overheated while riding my motorbike. Airflow doesnt really make a difference

I am betting that the sunlight on a gopro causes additional heating problems.

My new Hero 10 turns off after 20minuts. It is mounted on a canoe and is always in cool temp. I would not have purchased it if I had known about this issue. Very disappointed.

I’ve got the GoPro hero 10, and I have a overheating problem. I’ve switched off everything that I’m not using on the GoPro satnav mic voice activation, both screens. And I’m recording on the lowest setting.
I have my GoPro mounted to my motorbike with good air flow. And at 12degrees while recording on my bike. The longest it will record for is 8 min. Before it switches off due to overheating.
I’m very disappointed, I also have a hero4 which will record till the battery runs out with no problems
I need help
